esv
Let every person p be subject to the governing authorities. For [1] q there is no authority except from God, and [2] those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.
For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. [+] Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? ( If you desire to not have fear of the one in authority) Then do what is good, and you r will receive his approval, for s he is God’s servant for your good. [-] But if you do wrong, ( then ) be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. [A.] For he is the >>> servant of God ,<<< t an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also u for the sake of conscience.
For because of this you also pay taxes, [B.] for the authorities are >>> ministers of God <<< , attending to this very thing . v ( Therefore ) Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.
